Cool throwback 70s vibe
Jun 2020
One of my favorite places in Vegas. It is a small intimate place. Fully carpeted from the 70s. First let me talk about the food. I always start with the fried zucchini with their yummy dipping sauce for an appetizer. The zucchini has a nice crust on the outside and almost melts in you mouth upon bite. Succulent. Man, their burgers are FANTASTIC! Tasty, well-seasoned juicy meat. Delicious fries. Zucchini and a burger is my order every time. The music is always stellar. The crowd is energetic. Love when some of the regular local talent joins in one the performance. Top musicians know this is the place to go for true jazz aficionados. One time, Stevie Wonder's trumpeter showed up to play some sets after a concert. What a treat that was. Coincidentally, we were in Vegas to see Stevie Wonder the next evening. It was fun seeing the trumpeter performing with Stevie Wonder having just seen him up close and personal the night before. The owner is a delight. She welcomes you personally as if you are a guest at her house. The staff is friendly and attentive. There is a nominal entertainment charge added to the bill during live performances. Something like $10 per person. We have zero issues paying this. Well worth it for the excellent music you get in return. . Now for the criticisms: The joint is not always jumping. Although the performers are always excellent, they don't always have the right energy to keep the place lively. Doesn't often happen but sometimes. Does smell of cigarettes. Ventilation needs updating. Not enough places to sit. You might easily find yourself standing for the night, which is a pity if you had wanted to eat too. Several times we snagged the last couple of seats. We might have left had we not because we always go hungry ready to eat. It is a small venue but they could make better use of the space by removing the large booths and sofas and put in more tables.

Wife and I went to the Dispensary on Saturday night. We sat at the bar and ordered 2 burgers. One with cheese and one without. Bartender was very nice and had been in LV for a long time. He said we would be happy with our choice and we were. My wife and I dine out all the time and enjoy a good burger. After a short time the two burgers came out cooked to perfection and looked very good to the eye. After we had a taste we both looked at each other and said THESE ARE GREAT! The meat was very good the bun held up well with just the right amount of juice and the greens were crisp and tasty the condiments were on the side. It will be hard to find a better Burger in LV IMHO. I like round pickels so I asked them to cut me some. No problem they usually come with a pickel spear which I never figured out why anyone would serve a spear that you can't eat without eating burger bite then a pickel bite. I dont get that one? But they gave me what I wanted with out batting an eye.
Thanks Dispensary

In a town where just about everything and everyone is "transient" , this place is an enduring Oasis of consistant quality. Best burger I've had ijust about anywhere,, excellent service, and a relaxing, mellow atmosphere that is worth it's weight in gold in crazy Vegas. Prices are very reasonable. Stepping through the door is like stepping into a different dimension. No matter what it's like outside, this place is always cool and welcoming. And once you decompress, it's a great place for a party.

Went in with 4 friends for live Jazz. The beer was cold and a lot less expensive than other places I have been to in Las Vegas. The server said they had great burgers and she was right. All 5 burgers we ordered were cooked to the temperature we wanted and they even cut the fries fresh. They served this honey sauce and it was like liquid candy. The decor is like your grandma's basement and very comfortable. The best part was my buddy threw $20 in one of their slot machines and won $400, he paid the bill LOL. WE WILL BE BACK

Then you need look no further than here. Get the BBQ Burger. It's always on special at an amazing value and excellent.

The atmosphere is just what you would expect from Las Vegas. They have live music at great hours of the night, usually jazz. The house music is usually Sinatra and the crew and the layout is magnificent.

There are places to dine in private if you don't want to sit at the bar and a grinding mill indoors. Yes, I said a grinding mill indoors. You will have to see for yourself what I'm talking about and just how much of a gem this place is.

I almost hesitated writing anything about it because I want it all to myself.

What a great change of pace bar to relax, play some bar top slots and take in a game or two on the tube. If you like something a little less noisy, a little less smokey and a lot more relaxing, then this is your place. The food was great as well and Pam, the bartender, was not too hard on the eyes neither. The lounge atmosphere really lends itself to either two or three people socializing to a large group of people just hanging out.

A really fun dive. But it's not everyone's cup of tea. You have good eats, basic drinks, and a less than awful amount of smoke. The music is FANTASTIC! Both the live music, which most talk about, but EVEN the recorded music. It will bring you back. Don't really go here without a local. You will enjoy it, though.

We always check out who is playing at the Dispensary when we come to Vegas. If there is someone who fits our taste, off we go!
Very warm welcoming bar. The lady who owns the place is usually there, saying hi to the regulars, making sure the staff doesn't miss anything, and helping when needed.
When the retired lounge singer set drifts in for open mic night, it is a great night of the old standards.
Highly recommended.

Well gave it a shot and pleasantly rewarded with my decision. Wifey and me bored decided lets go chill for couple hrs 10:30pm on Saturday nite. Good drinks and eats nothing spectacular but the music and particularly Windy K is superb. If u are local couple 40+ and like jazz this is a must do.

Escape the pretentiousness at this laid back lounge. Established in 1976, this place keeps it real. Cheap menu, solid pours, delicious food. No wonder why this place has always been a local's favorite.
